The Swedish gaming subsidiary Yggdrasil has developed a new super-hero concept game.
[dropcap]Y[/dropcap]ggdrasil Gaming has “flown to the rescue” with the launch of its latest action-packed slot, Super Heroes.
The 5×3 game takes place in an apocalyptic setting where alien overlords are attempting to take over the world – and the reels.
Six unique super heroes – each holding a special super power including wild reels, mystery wins and win multipliers – can appear at random during any spin.
When the feature is triggered, two of the heroes appear on each side of the screen to boost winnings. During free spins, heroes are triggered on every spin, with their super powers growing stronger each time.
The game was created with new technologies that allowed the developers to break existing limits on characters and features in a slot game without performance suffering.
Super Heroes also features an explosive audio and visual layer with cinematic music and full character voice-overs designed to create a movie-like experience.
As part of the launch, Yggdrasil has commissioned a special comic book that tells the story of the heroes and outlines their special powers.
Meanwhile the operator will also host a network tournament between 28th October and 6th November featuring its in-game leaderboard, in-play raffle and re-watch tools.
Jonas Strandman, Head of Gaming at Yggdrasil, said: “The idea behind Super Heroes was to create a blockbuster slots title with graphics and animations that really make the player feel they are a part of the game.
“We are rolling out the red carpet for this launch, with a special comic book and network campaign tournament that will get players as excited about this new slot as we are.”
Yggdrasil’s portfolio of licensed slots contains a wide range of popular casino games, including Double Dragons, Big Blox and Monkey King.
Its collection of in-game promotional tools, BOOSTT, hands operators the power to run a number of features designed to boost engagement and retention, including innovative leaderboard and raffle engines.

Yggdrasil was the winner of Slot Provider of the Year at the 2016 EGR B2B Awards, the latest in a growing list of accolades including Gaming Software Supplier of the Year at the 2016 International Gaming Awards, and Software Rising Star at the 2015 EGR B2B Awards.
